First Aid and CPR
First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries
As a recreational diver, you can receive training to provide vital first
aid that can make a difference to a scuba diver with decompression illness.
The DAN Oxygen Provider Course provides entry-level training in the
recognition and management of possible diving-related injuries using
emergency oxygen first aid.
First Aid for Aquatic Emergencies
This course trains non-divers and professional rescuers (such as lifeguards)
to recognize near-drowning / submersion incidents and other aquatic
medical emergencies and to provide basic life support including the
use of oxygen first aid.
Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries
This advanced-level program is designed to train existing DAN Oxygen
Providers to use the MTV-100 or a Bag Valve Mask while providing care
for a non-breathing injured diver.
Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries
Serious hazardous marine life injuries are rare, but most divers experience
minor discomfort from unintentional encounters with fire coral, jellyfish
and other marine creatures. This course teaches divers to minimize these
injuries and reduce diver discomfort and pain.
External Defibrillators for Scuba Diving
More than 10 percent of all dive fatalities are actually caused by cardiovascular
disease, according to DAN dive accident and fatality statistics. This
course teaches divers and other interested parties to provide care for
sudden cardiac arrest including the use of an automated external defibrillator
Neurological Assessment for Divers
Learn how to conduct a neurological assessment on a potentially injured
diver in this course. The information gained in this assessment can
help convince a diver of the need for oxygen first aid, and help a dive
physician determine the proper treatment.
